I think I've made a huuuge mistake. If someone can give me a hint, I will be very grateful!
The first important thing is that I just started using ubuntu, so I'm not good at it.
I have a Genius P7545 digital camera that I wanted to use in ubuntu. It was detected as a USB drive, but it couldn't be mounted, so I was not able to browse the camera through the file system or transfer pictures.
I found some commands on this forum and I made the mistake of using them to manually mount the camera.
Created a new mount point: sudo mkdir /mnt/camera
Mounted the camera: $ sudo mount /dev/sda1 /mnt/camera -t vfat -o umask=000
Now my camera is completely messed up. It doesn't turn on any more and it's not detected by the computer either. Not even in windows.
Do you think something happened to the camera's memory? In fact I think it did, I don't see any other alternative.
What can be done in this situation? The camera is still in the warranty period, but I would prefer not taking it to a service.
Any help will be appreciated.
Thanks a lot!
